Female sun conure protecting another female's eggs
We have two sun conures. Both have been DNA sexed to be females. Our 4-year old just laid her first egg. Our 2-yr old was extremeley protective of her and the egg when I discovered it this morning. She was getting all fluffed up and "hissing" at me. (This behavior is normally displayed by our 4-yr old in response to our dogs.) Is it normal behavior for a female to protect another female's eggs? It seems more like male behavior to us.
